A Connecticut high school is apologizing and its coach has been suspended after its basketball team beat a visiting team by a whopping 92-4 scoreline.

School administrators at Sacred Heart, a Roman Catholic high school located in Hamden, Connecticut, has issued an apology to their visiting Lyman Hall High school opponents, who were left scoreless through three quarters of the girl’s basketball game on Monday evening, Fox 61 reported.

Jason Kirck, the third-year coach of the Sacred Heart Sharks, has also been suspended for one game as the dominant win did “not align” with the school’s teachings and principles.

“Sacred Heart Academy values the lessons taught and cultivated through athletic participation, including ethical and responsible behavior, leadership and strength of character, and respect for one’s opponents. Last night’s Girls’ Basketball game vs Lyman Hall High School does not align with our values or philosophies,” Sister Sheila O’Neill, the school’s president, said in a statement to GameTimeCT, a sports website.
